Every day, rising Santa Fe District Attorney Paul Chaney and his wife, Diane, wait for word that there’s a donor for their daughter, Chloe. Diagnosed with a rare degenerative condition, Chloe is on a long list to receive a double lung transplant. As her health worsens, Paul becomes desperate to save his young child…so desperate that he’ll risk everything to organize an operation. When Paul learns of a Dr. Novarro who performs transplants in Juarez , Mexico, he heads south in a frantic search for the only man who may be able to save Chloe. But after arriving, he realizes Dr. Novarro’s medical ring runs deep into a criminal underworld where his patients aren’t donors – they’re victims. With his career, his family and his life on the line, Paul finds himself at a critical crossroads: expose a massive, illegal harvesting operation and save the lives of hundreds of children, or save the life of his daughter.
Award-winning director, producer, and writer Baltasar Kormakur hails from Iceland, but his presence in the film industry is felt worldwide. Kormakur has six Edda Awards (Iceland's Oscar equivalent) to his name. "101 Reykjavik" brought Kormakur acclaim from publications the world over. Mr. Showbiz hailed the film as "so Almodovar that it could melt the polar icecap." Kormakur's 2002 effort, "The Sea," amassed the widest American distribution of any Icelandic film in history. Kormakur followed "The Sea" with 2005's "A Little Trip to Heaven," starring Forest Whitaker and Julia Stiles. "Jar City" (also known as "Myrin") won six Edda Awards in 2006 and the Crystal Globe at the prestigious Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in 2007. "Jar City" was Iceland's official Oscar selection for the Best Foreign Film category.
